Carl Zeiss Conquest HD5 Riflescope Series
Carl Zeiss Sports Optics introduced the Conquest HD5 Rifle Scope Series back in the beginning of 2013. The scopes are designed for demanding hunters in today’s world. You’ll find world-class features like new ballistic lockable turrets, a redesigned RAPID-Z ballistic reticle as well as a superior 5x variable magnification range. All these features are built into the most compact SuperZoom 1 inch rifle scope you can find anywhere.
On top of that you’ll find optical enhancements that work perfectly with the proprietary lens coating that Carl Zeiss riflescopes are known for. This guarantees one of the best levels of light transmission you can find. In addition the lenses are also coated with a water-repellant layer which reduces your levels of frustration in the rain by not letting the water stick to the lens.
The Carl Zeiss Conquest rifle scopes are designed and assembled in Germany. This ensures unsurpassed precision and reliability. The tube of these scopes are 1 inch and the adjustments are made in 1/4 MOA steps. There are currently three different Conquest HD5 rifle scopes for sale:
